GDP growth has held up well thanks to robust domestic demand, and is projected to remain above 5% in 2019 and 2020. Rising household incomes and low inflation will support household spending. Investment has slowed but will remain solid. The completion of large infrastructure projects in 2018 and 2019 should improve logistics considerably. Nonetheless, weaker trade growth, especially in Asia, will weigh on exports in 2019.
